Sorry about the confusing name. I didn't think right.
I think that it's big enough, and also different enough, to be a
separated phase. Can we keep it apart from destroot?
If yes, I would like to name it test phase. After all, all it does is
test if a package was correctly installed. it would be just after

> Yes, this commit surprised me. We already have a destroot phase, which of course has pre-destroot and post-destroot hooks, just as the other phases have pre- and post- hooks. Now you're making a new post-destroot phase... will there be pre-post-destroot and post-post-destroot hooks? What if a port has a post-destroot block -- is that a post- hook of the existing destroot phase, or does it overwrite this new post-destroot phase? This is confusing.
